During a segment that aired on the Larry King Show , CNN correspondent Jerry Penacoli says the death of David Carradine “was abnormal, the death was not natural. And the evidence shows that there were ropes tied around David’s neck and around his genitalia and that they were tied together. And that there is a report — several reports that there were ropes tied around his wrists.”
“It can’t be a suicide, necessarily. But what I find puzzling is that they’re saying that there’s no evidence that there was any other person or persons in the room. Well, you can’t tie your — your own wrists together and then have what happened happen. So it’s mysterious. And it just keeps getting deeper.”
Larry King turns to Mark Geragos, attorney for the actor’s brother, Keith Carradine. “Did he seem like he was depressed?”
“Not at all,” responds Geragos. “He was very excited. This was, apparently, a short movie stint over there. He was looking forward to getting back here. He just got a car. He’s a car nut. Had just been — being a fellow car nut, I can tell you, you don’t go out and buy a car right before you’re going to off yourself, generally. He was excited about coming back and had talked to his wife the night before.”
Later in the segment, Penacoli says a filmmaker and director named Damian Chapa, who worked with Carradine, said he “believes that there was foul play” in Carradine’s death. “And he said that no one else knows this but his family — Carradine’s family and friends and people closest to him, but David was very interested in investigating and disclosing secret societies.” (Emphasis added.)
“So whatever that means…”
It means you can end up dead.
Carradine’s family has asked the FBI  to investigate if the actor died from auto-erotic asphyxiation or murder.
